Series Description

FRONTLINE is investigative journalism that questions, explains and changes our world. Since 1983, FRONTLINE has served as PBS's flagship public affairs series. Hailed upon its television broadcast debut as "the last best hope for broadcast documentaries," FRONTLINE's stature is reaffirmed each week through incisive documentaries covering the scope and complexity of the human experience.

Program Description

This program follows a group of workers from the Emergency Children's Service in New York into homes where they confront violent parents and battered children. Over a million cases of child abuse were reported in 1984, and the figure is growing. (Mann family featured in this program also subject of the FRONTLINE program "Who Killed Adam Mann?" #1008.)
